Between Wednesday 11 and Sunday 15 September we will welcome our area Bishop, Richard Atkinson, Bishop of Bedford, who will lead a mission in the parish. The Bishop will be with us to encourage and support our ministry, and the work of our volunteers. But the purpose of the Mission is also to reach out to new people and strengthen our faith through teaching and prayer.
There will be opportunities for meeting the Bishop at our various services and during our Open Day on Saturday 14 September.
